Foreshadowing in the Outlander chapter
I guess the smallest bit of foreshadowing is in how William still sees himself as John’s son. He’s actually a little hurt that there’s a biological son (although, we know the truth), and it’s clear that he wants to rebuild some bridges.
Most of this chapter is plot development, though. We’re getting to know Amaranthus better, which is going to be important for later points in the story. There’s also the development of a bond between William and Amaranthus, which will play a part later.
Adapting the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter
I don’t expect to see all of this chapter used in the TV series. While I think we’ll see Amaranthus how up, I doubt that we’ll have the Cinnamon part. It doesn’t make sense to include him as we haven’t had as much development for John’s storyline in the series as we have in the book.
The Amaranthus storyline is a lot more important. It is a much bigger part of the overall plot. At least, I’m sure it is. While we don’t know everything just yet, this is not a woman I trust.
